Samvita Dutta | HENB | Jammu | Sept 2, 2021:: We often hear about scientists conducting digs and excavations, and discovering ancient artifacts which are many centuries old. Another such artifact has recently been recovered from the state of Jammu and Kashmir, by a group of common folk working by the Jhelum river.
A nearly 1,200 year-old sculpture of Goddess Durga was found in Jammu and Kashmir by the local police. The sculpture was found from the Jhelum river in Budgam district’s Khan Sahib area as some labourers were mining sand from the river bed.
The local police in Budgam said that several labourers were mining sand in the river bed when they stumbled across the ancient sculpture. The sculpture, made of black stone (precious touchstone/ kasuti) was then taken and given over to the Jammu 7 Kashmir government’s Archaeology and Museums department.
Speaking to news agency ANI, the Jammu & Kashmir police said, “Budgam Police recovered a 1200-yr-old (approx) sculpture of Goddess Durga from Khan Sahib of Budgam. The sculpture was handed over to Mushtaq Ahmad Beigh, Dy Director Department of Archives, Archaeology & Museums, J&K Govt and his team by Tahir Saleem Khan, SSP Budgam.”
Pertinent to mention that the said sculpture was found from river Jhelum at Pandrethan, Srinagar by labourers who were extracting sand from the river on 13th August 2021.
This revelation obviously established the strong root of Hindu culture and faith in the valley of Kashmir which was mentioned as Sharda heritage in Kashmir.
